This Shin Tai module presents a manual approach to the treatment of the conception vessel (CV) via the hara. Working with the theory that the hara (abdomen) is a central manifestation of the conception vessel, life force is brought back into the CV function by treating this area of the body.  A healthy hara/conception vessel flow is vital for a person’s physical well-being, as well as their ability to manifest dreams, images, and intentions within the life system.

Shin Tai techniques are applied with a unique focus that results in unique responses in the body. But it is not the techniques alone which make this bodywork so powerful; it is the comprehensive system of theory and evaluation that lie behind the techniques. This style of bodywork focuses on the flow of the central meridians, or energy flows, of the body: the Governing Vessel & Conception Vessel. In Chinese medicine, these meridians are the core components of the human information system.

  • Hara treatment for increasing resonance and recovering life force

Strong Hara Treatment = Strong Practice

If you want to have a thriving practice, learn how to give a good, strong hara treatment. Why? Because a hara treatment will change every client's condition for the better. It is one of the most direct ways to improve someone's health. When you give treatments that clearly bring more vitality, clarity and resilience to someone's life, as strong hara work does, you will attract more clients.

When someone receives hara treatment, many things occur in the body. Circulation is stimulated, digestion strengthens, absorption & blood quality improve, oxygenation of tissues occurs. Hormonal function steps up, reproductive organs awaken and sexual energy receives a boost. The flow of Conception Vessel, the meridian that energizes our ability to materialize our thoughts and dreams, is increased. The physical and energetic benefits are tremendous! Expand your hara work so that you can enjoy the benefits it can bring you and your clients. 

This course is for beginners and more advanced practitioners.  We have chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, nurses, cranio-sacral therapists, and shiatsu bodyworkers take this course.  

Livestream Option

For those of you who can not make it to this class in-person, you can participate via video livestream. This option requires you to have an internet connection plus a phone, tablet or computer.

We recommend that you have a practice partner to take the course with you so that you can experience giving and receiving each technique presented. If that is not possible, we recommend that you take the course live at some point in order to receive the work yourself OR go to a shin tai practitioner who can do it on you. Even though you can learn information and techniques from video instruction (some people even find it easier to learn this way), it is important to feel the effects of the work in your own system. As the bodywork shifts and opens your body, it creates new layers of experiential understanding about the concepts and practical application of the materials.

There is an option to have access to (unedited) video recordings of this class for an added fee of $100.
